Care for Birds, Reptiles & Mammals in Ceres

At American Pet Clinic, we provide routine wellness and preventive care services for your bird or other exotic pet. Exotic pets can also be seen for medical or behavioral concerns.

  • Wellness & Preventive Care

    Much like cats and dogs, birds and other exotic pets benefit from regular veterinary care to help live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our specialist is trained in the unique care and husbandry needs and veterinary treatment of these species.

    During the initial wellness visit, our specialist will thoroughly review your pet’s housing, nutrition, and care. A complete and thorough physical exam will be performed. Health screening tests and vaccines will be discussed and recommended when indicated. Our specialist will discuss any husbandry, health, or behavior concerns with you and answer any questions you might have. Recommendations will be tailored to the needs of your pet and their family.

  • Sick Pet Appointments & Daytime Emergencies

    Birds and other exotic pets with health or behavior concerns can be seen by our specialist. If possible, please call  (209) 537-2100 in advance to determine the availability of our specialist. While we do accept walk-in and work-in emergencies for exotic pets, there may be an additional fee if double booking of appointments occurs.

  • After Hours Emergencies

    Our hospital is fully equipped to meet the needs of critically sick birds and other exotic pets. Our Emergency Services is staffed by a team of veterinarians, registered veterinary technicians, and support staff. 

    If possible, please call in advance to determine if our specialist is available or if our Emergency Service veterinarian is able to evaluate your exotic pet.
